There are good things for the Grammy winner despite social distancing. Though Jennifer shows her excitement through her social media, she is using her platform to offer free concerts and to raise money for charity amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although quarantine has kept us all away from our normal activities, Jennifer Hudson does not let herself down for that. The singer recently took to Instagram to post about her excitement on the premiere of the new film on the Clark Sisters.
Wearing a fancy white jacket with silver fringes, Jennifer sings in the video showing how happy she is about watching the film that night. Her amazing voice and her happy dancing make us want to know more about it.
“The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel” is a biopic that premiered on April 11 on Lifetime TV. According to the media, it was an instant big hit since the two-hour movie garnered 2.7 million total viewers, becoming the highest-rated original movie for Lifetime since 2016.
On the Instagram post, Jennifer wrote, “I don’t think yal understand just how excited and ready I am for this Clark’s sisters tonight honey!!!!!!!!!!!”
To keep up a better mood, Jennifer teamed up with the World Health Organization and other colleagues from the music industry to offer free virtual concerts for their fans, entertain them and also to encourage them to stay home and to keep themselves safe.
Among other musicians and singers who accompanied her from their homes through live stream, were H.E.R, who went acoustic with her guitar, and Joe Jonas, who decided DJing electro-funk and Eighties.
Ever since the social distancing started due to coronavirus pandemic, many music stars have been bringing intimate concerts to fans through social media. However, the Grammy winner, as well as H.E.R, are using their platforms to raise funds for different charities.
Many concerts, premieres, and events have been canceled or postponed around the world, so celebrities have been coping with these schedule changes. Likewise, the Oscar-winning actress has been affected by that since “Respect”, the film she stars on was delayed.
“Respect” is a highly anticipated biopic on the life and legacy of Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, as she was known. The film was supposed to premiere on October 9th, but it was rescheduled to release on Christmas Day this year to qualify for awards season consideration.

Some weeks after wrapping the “Respect” production, Jennifer was seen shopping for some jewelry in Beverly Hills wearing a large camouflage coat. By the time she did not know the premiere of the movie would be rescheduled.
